SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Adaptiv Technologies is upping nighttime visibility of riding apparel with its latest product, the GlowRider Electro-Luminescent Vest. The vest incorporates battery-powered electro-luminescent panels that emit a soft glow.
Much like Adaptiv’s GlowRider Electro-Luminescent Jacket, the vest has three Electro-Luminescent (EL) panels strategically positioned on the back and sides to make the rider more visible at night. The lights can be adjusted to glow constantly or flash.
Two AA batteries power the EL strips for more than 70 hours, and the entire electrical system adds less than 1.5 lbs. to total weight.
The rest of the vest is designed for maximum visibility, with a bright green mesh shell and reflective strips. The GlowRider vest has an MSRP of $129, and has a sizing range from XS to 3XL.
